Bealtaine and Calan Mai in Myth and Tradition

Post by Comyn »

A Cornerstone of the Celtic Year

Originally published in the magazine Keltoi: A Pan Celtic Review in 1994. Written by one of the founding members of that organization's American branch, Liam O'Caiside, this informative essay puts what is really known regarding the ancient festival of Beltaine in historical context and provides summaries of several folk traditions associated with May Day in Celtic lands and offers possible connections of those survivals to their origins in the deep mythical past.

A must read for all who would seek office as Druid!
